Reviewed February 28, 2014

We stayed last night on our way back to Queenstown after touring the South Island. Very nice room, excellent dinner and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Tried the Hinton Pinot which is a Central Otago wine and very much worth the effort. Would thoroughly recommend.

Always wanted to stop here - finally did over the weekend. We weren't super hungry so asked if we could share a main breakfast. To our delight we were presented with two smaller sized portions for our eating pleasure. What a nice touch. Great ambiance, presentation and excellent service with a smile. Oh and the food was delicious! Must visit.

Room Tip: We didn't stay, just stopped to eat so haven't rated the accommodation.

This is a hidden gem set in the beautiful landscape of Central Otago! On the main road between Roxburgh and Alexandra it is a gorgeous cottage tastefully restored and oozing charm! The meals they serve are superb! Unfortunately we have not stayed in the accommodation (yet) but this is on our to do list! We have viewed the rooms and they look outstanding! We travel through to Alexandra on a fairly frequent basis in the summer months so we always allow time to stop for an incredible bite to eat in this quaint and beautiful place! Service is top notch and very friendly. The courtyard is lovely on a warm summery day! What else can I say? We keep going back...surely that is enough to make you try it too! :-)

A lovely 15 minute drive outside Alexandra. Old stone buildings with everything tastefully modern inside. Amazing in autumn. Owners were very considerate of our needs despite the resturant/cafe being closed during our stay. They provided us with milk, biscuits & apples. The room was spacious, with plenty of towels, toiletries and tea & coffee. Heated room & bathroom, with electric blankets on the bed. Flat screen TV with DVD player. I would definitely reccommend this place to friends and family, and I would love to stay here again. Best accommodation I have stayed in by far!

Just south of Alexandra, NZ is a fabulous find. We were looking for brunch, saw the sign, then came across this picturesque restored-stone cafe/bar/inn. Wonderful rustic food (tasty pulled pork sandwich, home baked sourdough, with chunky chicken soup and excellent coffee) in a sunny backyard garden. Great service, local art and preserves to buy. Just lovely. They have rooms as well, and we'll be keen to stay next time. Highly recommended.

What a great little find on the side of the road. We were looking for an authentic and charming country restaurant for lunch and couldn't have asked for more. The owner was lovely and so was the food and the setting. The steak sandwich was delicious. The surrounding area is spectacular and the scenery between here and Queenstown was absolutely spectacular. So glad we stopped here!

We went on a drive to Central Otago to buy summer fruit from the road side stalls and had lunch at Speargrass Inn Fruitlands. The day was hot so we welcomed the cool building to share lunch. Their is also a wonderful courtyard with large umbrellas over tables so people can dine outside. The food was authentic cafe style and delicious. The is plenty of choice from the menu. The meals are large so the waitresses recommended half size meals for smaller eaters which was welcomed. The waitresses were friendly, helpful and polite.
